Several relationships take surprising turns in the gripping season-ender Sunday, March 25 on CBC Television
HEARTLAND, CBC-TV's most popular family drama, wraps its fifth season Sunday, March 25 at 7 p.m. (7:30 NT) with a gripping finale that sees several main characters' relationships take some surprising turns.
When a mystery horse arrives at Heartland, Amy and Ty are sent down a path that will alter their lives. Meanwhile, Tim and Miranda realize they have to take their son Shane's wishes into consideration, so they decide to spend some quality time together with surprising results. Peter drives Lou crazy when he takes over the plans for their second anniversary celebration but she is almost speechless when he reveals his surprise.
HEARTLAND is a sprawling multi-generational saga about a family getting through life together in both happy and trying times. Against the glorious backdrop and stunning vistas of the foothills of Alberta, HEARTLAND tells real stories about real people, people who Canadians from across the country have grown to love and welcome into their homes.
Fans of the show are encouraged to follow along with the finale drama on Twitter using the hashtag: #iloveheartland. They can also enhance their experience with Heartland Ranch - a branded Facebook social game that lets fans run their own virtual horse ranch, tending to injured horses and expanding their operation with the main characters from the show. The game is available as a Facebook App.
